Beau Rivage

Una cenetta romantica nel giardinetto di questo hotel dove era stata la Marvi la scorsa estate . Secondo me è un po’ caruccio più di quanto avevo pensato ma era tutto veramente buono ! Pesce fresco , generose porzioni e un filetto con salsa verde che era proprio buono quindi amen…. caruccio me ottimo!

Il famoso filetto

Il giardinetto è romantico ! Loro sono gentili e la focaccia buonissima e salata al punto giusto!

Insalata di mare tiepida
Un omaggino . Spada spaziale e la patata di garessio

Il tonnato come lo fanno a Saluzzo

Da la dolce vita Albenga

Ottimo. Molto

Buono . Antipastino. Domani infatti la sagra del budino della nonna la ‘faccio’ solo per i Berta ma mangio a casa! Troppo troppo !

poi oggi in spiaggia apoteosi di bontà con i famosi totani ripieni . Piatto tipico ligure che non sempre si trova. Mangiato alla sagra del prete domenica e adesso me lo ha fatto lo chef

Erano sublimi. E poi Paolo ha preso la tartare. Dice che era ottima e saporita .

Now we kind of love this place.

Genova pics
We did a nice walk around the narrow streets and discovered this amazing church of Santa Maria Maddalena 

Inside is something to remember. We loved it. Then we walked through scary streets and ended up in corso Garibaldi with amazing old buildings. Breathtaking. And next time I want to visit some museum!

Next time we would like to try this bistrot . Sounds so good and charming! We need to sleep there one time . I loved the Bristol hotel when I was there many years ago.

Genova !!!!!! We’ll be back soon!

Never seen such a French invasion in our country! Everybody was French! 

I needed some shopping as I lack in coats.

We had lunch at la porta verde . Our third time and this time I had this amazing gnocchi with mazzancolle with pesto di rucola 

Sooooo good! Too bad no photos as I was chatting with Roberta on the phone.

La festa delle Babacce

We went to REZZO, a hilly and woody village close to Pieve di Teco for the pumpkin fair. in the beginning i thought it was too crowded and messy but in the end it was well organized and well done . I almost wanted to go home. I don’t like places with too many people but the four of us left a bit behind the group of friends and climbed up to the castle first. we bought a voucher for 15 euro with 10 tasting coupons. and every corner of the village had 1o stands. first pan fritto. (heavy…without prosciutto or salame is very hard to cope).

then torta di zucca – pumpkin pie that was simply delicious! we walked up till the castle (very step) and the village itself is very nice I am sure that during the day it’s amazing to take pictures of the houses. we had pumpkin soup at the castle and then sausage and beans in another spot of the village. and every house had his own display of the halloween pumpkins.

then we had pumpkin focaccia, pumpkin pie, vin brule pumpkin pie and hot chocolate. in the public gardens a disco!

well done and nice. even if …too many cars. some people were parked km away. almost 6. i wonder…..will they ever be able to reach the village.

i liked it. it was a great experience and a nice little village to discover. write it down…REZZO!
